Recently I was experimenting with layering Abbey Road ONE presets.
When I tried playing an initial patch, I noticed that the sound did not decay naturally but seemed more like a gate was shutting things down.I loaded the same instrument into a MIDI track in my DAW (Cakewalk by BandLab) and the sound decayed as expected.

Here is a short video illustrating what I am experiencing, using BBCSO Discover.

This happens with Abbey Road ONE and BBCSO (All versions). There seems to be something possibly going on under the hood in relation to how the Spitfire Player is responding to UNIFY, as it does not behave in the same way if it is on an isolated MIDI track not utilizing UNIFY.

I also have submitted this to support as well but wanted to post it here to see if anyone here could reproduce this on their setup.

Thanks so much for the assistance,
Simeon

Unify's default Transport mode is "MIDI / Quick Stop", which basically means the Transport runs only as long as at least one key is down, and stops immediately when all fingers and the sustain pedal are lifted. Many third-party plug-ins watch their host's (i.e., Unify's) transport, and will cut off all sound quickly when it stops. This is the expected behavior in a DAW, where the transport stops when you stop playback (or recording), but doesn't work so well when performing.

Try switching Unify's Transport to various other modes (see https://pluginguru.net/unify/manual-1.6/doku.php?id=transport#starting_and_stopping_the_transport) and see if the problem disappears.

Some plug-ins (notably Xfer Records' Serum synth) provide a setting to control this, but I don't know if any of Spitfire's plug-ins do.

Shane, that was the issue. I will see what I can do to forward this to the Spitfire Audio devs.

Thanks so much for the help.
All the best,
